So happy we booked this resort. It was a bit of a splurge but it was very relaxing and has an incredible beach area. Beautiful views. The hotel staff goes out of their way to accomodate. Going to the beach, the beach staff were helping in finding chairs and bringing water which was incredible. We found 3 nights the perfect...

Am reluctant to review this hotel in such a positive way as it may mean that I can never afford to stay here again! Anyhow, despite a slight wait at reception, I received a warm and friendly greeting and was shown personally to my room. This level of service and attention continued throughout my stay. I was only here for...

The Shangri-La is a very big hotel complex in a secluded bay outside Muscat. We were happily surprised that the Al Husn hotel seemed never busy despite the fact that it was fully booked. Very pleasant. The staff is friendly, efficient and a little on the slower side which makes it easy to unwind. The Al Husn is generally very...

We stayed here for a week at the end of November and it was the perfect destination for a relaxing week's holiday. We chose to stay at the Al Husn hotel over the Al Waha and Al Bandar as was a little quieter and more luxurious. The advantage here is that you can use the facilities at all three hotels...

Reviewed 29 December 2013

Staff were generally excellent. The room, with sea view, was great, quiet with a lovely bathroom & lots of wardrobe space. The little touches such as free mini bar, drinks at 6 p.m., high tea in the afternoon were very welcome and made the whole occasion special. Good choice for dining. An expensive hotel but worth it.

We are just back from 6 days at the Shangri-La, staying in the Al Husn hotel. We had kind of expected to spend a lot of time relaxing on the beach but were amazed at how much there was to do: we did a great half-day trip to Muscat, full day hiking in Wadi Shab (a must) dolphin watching (that...

Reviewed 24 December 2013

Great location and service, but a rather strange attitude from the front desk from arrival to departure. The rates for the hotel are very high and this is just not acceptable when paying this much. Restaurants reviewed separately, but the breakfast and evening drinks stood out for both quality of service and food.
